Titanium dioxide-free semi-opacifier reaches market ahead of French ban

Lonza launched Vcaps Plus White Opal, its first commercially-available titanium dioxide-free semi-opaque capsule for food supplements, at CPhI Worldwide 2019. The launch precedes a ban on titanium dioxide, set to come into force in France, 2020. Stéphane Vouche, Marketing Manager at Lonza, predicts that increased scrutiny is bound to increase demand for clean label solutions in the space – something the new product offers with its avoidance of unnecessary chemicals, plasticizers and other elements.

Addressing clean label supplement demands

Lonza recently revealed the global launch of its latest dosage form innovation: Capsugel Vcaps Plus plant-based capsules. The first of the next-generation clean label solutions to be marketed worldwide is the Vcaps Plus Purple Carrot capsule, following the successful introduction of the Vcaps Plus Blue Spirulina capsule in Europe earlier this year. The high-performance capsule shell is made using plant-based hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, without any preservatives. A colorant derived from purple carrots is used to match the desired shade as closely as possible, while maintaining a natural appearance in the finished supplement. Achieving unique visual appeal, the purple carrot color also provides masking capabilities.
